I’ve been planning this hair cut for months. I knew I wanted to do it, but needed to wait until my bangs/fringe grew out. Normally, they’d grow super fast, but of course when I want them to grow they move like snails. But the day was finally here! I armed myself with a ton of photos for inspiration. Translation: I downloaded a ton of ScarJo photos to my phone, enough to make a folder.
The moment I saw her rock this hair, I knew I needed it. I showed up for my appointment, told my stylist what I wanted and she was super excited! It helps that she’s someone I’ve known since school. She’s done all kinds of things to my hair over the years, and she’d never steer me wrong. She looked through the photos I had, and decided that my bangs were long enough! Then we talked about a color. I’ve always wanted red and have tried it in the past, but it’s a lot of upkeep plus I didn’t want to do any bleaching. We went with a shade that would show pretty awesome on the shaved parts and a bit darker on my overall hair.
Here’s a before!
And here’s the after!
I. Love. It! I don’t think I’ve ever loved a hair cut more! I feel like I have a hair style now instead of just hair. Jenn showed me a few different ways to style it, which I really appreciate it. I’m very “girl challenged” and don’t do hair/makeup well. I feel confident thought that I can handle this. The hilarious part is though that ScarJo JUST colored her hair red too. Which of course sent the internet into a possible “Short Hair Black Widow” frenzy.
I was really nervous about getting the cut. I know it’s just hair, and it’ll always grow back, but it can really make or break you. We’ve all had that bad haircut that left us in tears. Where we just wanted to wear a hat until it grew out. But this? I just want to run around and show it off and take a shitload of selfies!
